There will be a special collection to support The Catholic Mirror the weekend of October 1 and 2.

Dear Friends,

Since my arrival as your bishop in 2020 I have come to appreciate the efforts of our Catholic Communications’ Ministry in sharing the “Good News” with the Catholic faithful here in western Massachusetts. Among their various communication tools is The Catholic Mirror publication.  In the pages of each issue are stories to inspire and inform us on our faith and how it is lived out daily throughout the four western counties of our diocese. Every issue has something for everyone.

But like all worthy efforts, we need your support. The cost to produce and mail this magazine is shared between the diocese and your parish, costing .65 cents for each issue mailed out.  Please prayerfully consider a gift to your parish as part of our annual Catholic Mirror Parish Collection Drive. These donations stay with your parish to help it provide this to each and every household, including those who may not be with us on a regular basis.

If you don’t currently receive The Catholic Mirror please contact either your parish office or our Catholic Communications ministry at 413-732-3175.  I thank you in advance for your consideration.

In Christ,

+Most Reverend William D. Byrne

Bishop of Springfield
